Patient Comments (36)

I have been to both of Dr. Becker's offices and both are great. We were able to delay surgery until I was ready and now that it is over, I have regained total use of my arm. I couldn't be happier with my experience and highly recommend Dr. Becker to anyone with an injury.

Wonderful doctor. Great staff. I've been under his treatment for trigger fingers for 3 years now. He performed a trigger finger release on my left hand's index finger to great results. I need another finger operated on and am about to schedule with Dr. Becker once again. Highly recommended.

I had my ACL surgery by another doctor and it failed after 2 years. Dr. Becker performed by revision ACL reconstruction and from Day 1 I knew I was going to do better. I am 2 years out now and back to full sports. I came back in for an ankle sprain and thought I would leave a thank you. THANK...more
